Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument Symposium

April 6, 2023 @ 6:00 pm


Join us for this free Zoom event during which the three university student researchers who received grants through our Friends Research Fund in 2022 will present their findings! Participants will have a chance to ask questions and engage with the presenters. The student presenters are:

Thomas Hillard, an undergraduate student in earth science and biology at the University of Oregon, who is mapping out the rock formations in Jenny Creek Falls and a region of tuffaceous rocks, debris flow and lava around Pilot Rock.

Hilary Rose Dawson, a Ph.D. student in Biology at the University of Oregon, who is creating a preliminary list of truffle (underground-fruiting fungi) species found in the Monument. She is conducting her research with the help of a dog named Rye.

Heather Stewart-Ahn, a Master’s student in biology at Eastern Washington University, who is studying an extremely rare vividly red lichen, Umbilicaria phaea var. coccinea, that is found in the Monument.
